The ministry of textiles has presented a curtain raiser to ‘Textiles India 2017’, positioned as the first ever global B2B textile and handicrafts event in India. The biggest textile event in the history of India will be held in Gujarat from June 30-July 2, 2017. The landmark event will showcase the entire range of textile products from ‘fibre to fashion’.

The aim is to make this global trade event one of the key annual destinations for international buyers. It will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The event is expected to have more than thousand stalls and will witness the presence of over 2,500 discerning international buyers, agents, designers, retail chains from across the world, and 15,000 domestic buyers.

The three day event will include global conference on the last day with six themes, to be chaired by concerned Union ministers and the valedictory session presided over by the Union finance minister. Over 33 round-tables will be held on issues of concern for the various segments of textiles and handicrafts on the second day i.e., July 1, with prominent international speakers and industry leaders.

The curtain raiser event for Textile India 2017 witnessed an inspiring experience of the major strands of the textile story of India, as represented by the leading crafts persons and fashion designers of the country. The presentation was a celebration of the textiles and handicrafts of India, bringing to the fore the inspiring vision of the PM Modi – 'from farm to fibre, fibre to factory, factory to fashion, fashion to foreign'.

Speaking on the occasion, the Union textiles minister Smriti Irani said, "The spectrum of Indian textiles is extremely diverse and its history is world-renowned. Textiles India 2017 holds the promise of becoming a landmark annual trade event for the Indian textiles and apparel industry at the global level. With this curtain raiser, the ministry is celebrating the significant achievements of India's textile industry and the enormous promise of spectacular growth over the next few years."

Irani also applauded the community which manufactures the diverse fabrics, apparel and textiles in the country and creates handcrafted brilliance for the world to experience.

The Crafts Village was vibrant with unique exhibits celebrating the diverse crafts and textiles of India and the skills of the weavers and craftsmen from across the country, who were especially invited to be a part of this evening. The artisans presented live demonstrations showcasing the potential of the products for international markets. The international delegates that attended were extremely appreciative of the attention to detail and incredible hand-work of these artisans.

A representation of artisans, weavers, emerging and established designers from across the country celebrated the special preview to Textiles India 2017. The fashion designers and craftsmen showcased the strength of the Indian textiles sector in cotton, silk, wool, woven and hand-printed, embroidered as well as modern and futuristic textiles.

The event was hosted by the ministry of textiles, Government of India, under the leadership of Irani and minister of state, Ajay Tamta. Secretary, textiles, Rashmi Verma and other senior officials too were present on the occasion. (KD)
